Leak from top of windscreen

I'm taking in water from top of windscreen anytime it rains. I need a new trim also as top one is missing and side ones ain't the best !

I got quoted £70 for it to be removed and refitted , I've seen a Renault trim is about £35 for the windscreen , am I best claiming for a new screen on insurance?

I would definitely claim for a new windscreen and buy the Renault windscreen kit off rpd.

The kit is virtually impossible to fit without taking the windscreen off .

Don't forget that Renault OEM windscreens will very likely be much better quality than A.N.Other random windscreen from whichever company your insurance company is tied to - I had the valver screen replaced through insurance and it was as rippled as a 15th century church window. It was f**king annoying.

This thread is worth a read on PH:
My Autoglass one is a Pilkington unit with the solar screen, i was panicking when they came to do it thinking they'd give me a cheap 1.2 screen.

Deffo replace the three rubber bits round the screen, otherwise the corners won't sit flat.
